Cut size and finished size

The difference between a cut size and a finished size is the width of the hem and the width of the seam (or welding). The normal width of the hem and seam in tarpaulin confection is about 5 cm.

Cut size is the gross size before fabrication. The finished size will be smaller (-/- 2 x 5 cm hem , -/- number of seam x 5 cm)

Finished size is the nett size after fabrication. The cut size will be bigger (+/+ 2 x 5 cm hem, +/+ number of seam x 5 cm).

Cut size 4,00 m x 6,00 m 24,00 m²
Finished size 3,85 m x 5,90 m Surface 22,72 m² (-/- 5,3%)
